-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat

. >> heather: new details in the showdown over the confirmation of chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. after successfully blocking his nomination last week, senate republicans including senator lindsay graham say they have a lot more issues to iron out before moving forward with his confirmation at the end of this month. national correspondent steve centanni is live in washington. what exactly senator graham's latest concern? >> it's his supported of israel. he said to have made this speech and here is lindsay graham this morning on fox news sunday. >> allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that. and the letter said he did not recall saying that and disavows the statement. >> unless new information comes to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be
everything they did to stop and perhaps ruin the reputation of chuck hagel for awhile. even after it was inevitable. they kept it up just to screw up the government, hurt its functioning, and smear a man. those are the facts. we'll document them. >>> finally kfc or chick-fil-a, bagels and croissants or doughnuts? are you what you eat? what you eat may be determined by who you vote for. isn't that interesting? we'll show the parallel how we go to fast food stores and vote. there is one. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, the republicans have put up the white flag on their opposition to the violence against women act. they decided their trimmed down version of the bill cannot pass. and it's a political loser. so they're now expected to pass the senate version of the bill and let the democrats have their way. the biggest issue was republican opposition to how the bill handled violence in tribal areas, believe it or not. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the u.s. senate held its much anticipated hearing on banning military assault weapons today. j

hagel's critics. >> that's pretty obvious that the political knives were out for chuck hagel. >> that's what you think it was? it was totally partisan? >> what disappointed me is they talked a lot about past quotes, but what about what a secretary of defense is confronting today? what about the war in afghanistan? what about the war on terrorism? what about the budget sequester? >> and baltimore parties all night after the ravens' victory over the 49ers. the highest rated super bowl in history produced enough power for beyonce, but what triggered that 34 minute blackout? >> as the nfl works feverishly to get the power back on. we have a moment as the players now beginning to realize this may be a little bit of a delay as different players are setting out on the field starting to stretch, starting to stay loose. really as bewilledered as the rest of the crowd here. >> did brotherly love prevail over sibling rivalry? >> going against these years, you had a feeling he would come roaring back. the team reflects his permit. they came roaring back. they have so much character. they're amazi

their love. they're showing their love for chuck hagel by filibustering his nomination. now they're showing their love for america's children by refusing to endorse universal preschool. their showing their love for workers by refusing to raise the minimum wage. they're showing their love for all americans by refusing to accept a reasonable compromise to avoid the sequester. in other words they don't love any of us. they hate us all! that's their valentine's day message. all right. we'll expand on that and a whole lot more on today's full court press. but today, we get the latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning to you. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. the president is on his way to georgia this morning to talk about universal pre. doesn't is a proposal he unveiled in his state of the union address on tuesday saying he wants to ensure high-quality schooling for every 4-year-old in the country. today, obama is visiting a prekindergarten classroom at an early childhood learning center and then he's speaking at a community recreation center in geor
forward, was not able to get the votes to move forward on a confirmation vote on former senator hagel, they must be very upset if they think cozying up to iran and betraying israel further than this administration already has, if they think that's a good idea, closer to iran, betray israel, yesterday was a bad day and you should be very angry with most of the senate republicans and especially my friend senator ted cruz, because they happen to be concerned about our ally israel and concerned about threats of madmen running the country of iran. so if you look, though, at the speeches that have come out after senator hagel had said all things were made public and then this stuff keeps trickling out, another speech, hey, let's put a consulate in iran while they are trying to destroy us and apparently some people can't remember past 10, 12 years and i think it's important to remember our history. 1979, i was at fort beening, georgia in the united states army and some of us haven't forgotten what was happening. and as we have seen new things arise, as we have seen the horrors of what is goi

to be his successor, chuck hagel. it is date night too. i want to point out that. the democratic senator from colorado two years ago proposed, judy, that members instead of just democrats sitting with democrats and republicans... this year i think he's doing it with the republican senator from alaska, that peoplec with people from the other party and across the aisle. several members have done it. i think mccain and gram seem to be a couple of them. >> they share the popcorn. woodruff: that's a tradition they started a few years ago. a a number of members picked it up. it seemed to fade. >> it was done right after the gabrielle giffords. >> woodruff: she's here tonight. i don't think we've seen her in the last few minutes but we saw her just before we went on the air. she's there with her husband mark kelly. she and her husband have become the two, i guess, you could say the most prominent faces of this new push to do something about gun violence. they're working with the mayors against... >> exactly. and especially in view of the fact that she has the support and endorsement of the nati
of requirements. if we change that, make a choice about what we are not going to do. host: chuck hagel -- what is your opinion? guest: i think he is clearly qualified. he has the background in defense. i would be foolish to say his confirmation process went well. he will have to do better than that in terms of building the relationships necessary in the house and the senate because credibility manages -- matters an enormous amount. he will be very dependent on the staff at the pentagon to implement whatever policy he wants. he will need their faith and confidence. he will have to work to earn that in the same thing in the house and the senate. secretary leon panetta and secretary robert gates, they had an enormous amount of credibility in the pentagon and in the congress. in tough times and tough decisions, that enabled them to be very effective. secretary chuck hagel will have to work at that hard it does not come automatically. host: what is your relationship with the chair of the armed services committee, buck mckeon? guest: it is outstanding. we have a long tradition of the chair and the r
